Great day - a variety of cider to taste... very generous with samples too :-) And good food stalls too. Was quite small, but just what was needed. The live music added a good touch. visited Shoreditch Park on 12 Aug 2017

This was a perfectly enjoyable hour, but for £10 is an absolute rip-off. You get nothing with the ticket except for entry and there were only about 12 stalls, many of which had nothing to do with the theme. The best stall was making rum coconuts, and the stall holder just had a machete and was opening the coconuts in front of you. I would have felt much better about the whole thing, enjoyed it more and probably spent more money at the stalls if I did not have to pay for a ticket. By charging £10 or £12 it gives the impression that this is going to be a big event or at least bigger than the 12 stalls that were there. I feel bad writing this review as everyone was friendly and nice, but honestly, I was pretty disappointed. I thought this would be a big day out, but it took 3 minutes to walk the entire event. visited Shoreditch Park on 12 Aug 2017

A few ciders, a couple of food vans and a patch of grass don't make much of a 'festival'. Wish we d gone elsewhere. visited Shoreditch Park on 12 Aug 2017

There were hardly any apples or apple related things, ridiculous to be charged entry to a bunch of stalls - could have just gone to Borough Market and had better selection anyway. visited Shoreditch Park on 12 Aug 2017

It was a nice event but I felt that £10 was a lot for what it was. There were very few stalls and it was more of a cider festival rather than just apple. Would have been nice if the entertainment was a bit more varied and up-beat. Libby visited Shoreditch Park on 12 Aug 2017

Wonderful day out at the festival. It really felt like a village fair with games, live music, etc. My kids loved the apple bobbing and my husband loved the cider. Also liked the tasting session with free ciders, thought that was a nice touch. We will be back next year.

Very small "festival" and was disappointed by it as we paid £10.00 each to get in. The live performances was depressing however the guy on the guitar was very entertaining. Wouldn't go again unless it was free and I was in the area. visited Shoreditch Park on 12 Aug 2017

Great event. Well organised. Lots of space. Everyone was friendly. I would only say to try and get some more traders. I don't think there was enough choice for food. Although the duck wraps were great! I think there could have been a few more cider trucks as well. Having said that I'm looking forward to the next one! Max visited Shoreditch Park on 12 Aug 2017

Big fan of Jesse Monroe who's singing on Sat and Sun. She's awesome, amazing voice. Saw her play in Brazil a couple of years ago. Can't wait to see her at the festival.
